University research contributes to improved defense
department weapons systems and, therefore, violates " the
spirit, if not the letter, of the Regents' Guidelines on
Classified Research," a Michigan Student Assembly in-
vestigator reported last night.
Bret Eynon-brought in last fall by MSA to research defen-
se-sponsored work on campus--said that despite reforms
made in the early 1970s to eliminate most classified defense
research, much ongoing unclassified work may contribute to
the destruction of human life.
,THE UNIVERSITY guidelines, which apply strictly to
classified work, state that no researcher on campus may en-
ter into any contract "the clearly forseeable and probable
result of which, . . , or any specific purpose of which is to
destroy human life."
The defense research issue, reopened by the faculty Senate
Assembly in November, has prompted the University's
executive officiers to review the guidelines, possibly to in-
clude provisions for unclassified work.
The faculty and student Research Policies Committee will
discuss the issue at its Feb. 1 meeting, according to commit-
tee chairman Raymond Kahn, Professor of Anatomy.
EYNON-A University graduate and local historian-
assailed the University's present review system for un-
classified work as inadequate.
"In his report to. MSA last night, Eynon cited a number of
ongoing faculty projects sponsored by the defense depar-
tment as questionable in nature;

A group of college and university presidents,
meeting with state budget officials in Lansing
yesterday, were warned that they must accept a
$225 million temporary budget balancing plan or
face permanent cuts in state appropriations.
State budget Director Gerald Miller, meeting
with members of the Michigan Council of State
College Presidents, promised that the state will
seek to guarantee repayment of the $33.9 million
being slashed from the University's summer aid
payments by requiring the legislature to pass the
fiscal 1983 budget before acting on the cuts.
THE MILLIKEN-backed proposal was un-
veiled Monday as part of the Governor's $5
billion budget for the 1983 fiscal year that begins
Under the budget, $225 million in summer aid
payments for universities, community colleges
and local governmental units would be
eliminated during July, August, and September
of this year. The money would be paid back by
fhe state, however, early in the next fiscal year.
Although there was disagreement as to
whether the temporary cuts would result in
eventual increases in state aid, University vice-
president for state relations Richard Kennedy
called the state's plan "novel and imaginative,"
adding that "the alternative is appalling."
"WHAT THEY'RE doing is buying time,
Kennedy said of the state's plan.
According to James Brinkerhoff, University
vice-president and chief financial officer, the
plan is a last minute financial maneuver to
balance the state's budget and still maintain
some funds for higher education.
"The question is whether the state can approve
or continue to appropriate funding in 1983,"
Brinkerhoff said, adding that the plan is still con-
tingent upon state legislative approval.
"THE LEGISLATURE will have to determine
what options they have and what options are the
best course for this state," said Douglas Roberts,
of the State Office of Management and the
Budget. He said, However, that legislative ap-
proval cannot be guaranteed.
According to Fred Whims, director of higher
education in the State Budget Office, some in-
stitutions will have trouble borrowing money on
the open market to meet operating expenses
during the three month period specified in the
"I think we will find that institutions such as
the University of Michigan and Michigan State
will be- able to borrow internally," Whims said,
referring to the reallocation of an institution's
own reserve funds.
"I doubt seriously we would do that (reallocate:
funds internally) when we have our internal fun-,
ds invested at 18 percent interest," Brinkerhoff
said, adding "We can borrow (on the open,
market) at 12 percent interest."

ne, he defended his
decision not to try to stop the ballooning
federal deficit by increasing taxes.
"Higher taxes would not mean lower
deficits," the president said. "Raising
taxes won't balance the budget."
Reagan said that a "grassroots trust
fund," filled by federal revenues, would
distribute $28 billion a year to the 50
states to pay for the additional respon-
sibilities handed over to them.
"The economy will face difficult
moments in the months ahead,"
Reagan stated. "But, the program for

Reviewing his first year in office, the
president said "we have made a new
beginning, but we have only begun."
He said that had he not pursued a
policy of tax and spending cuts, "things
would be far worse for all Americans
than they are today. Inflation, taxes
and interest rates would all be higher."
"I believe history will remember this
an an era of American renewal;
remember this administration as an
administration of change; and remem-
ber this Congress as a Congress of
destiny," he said.
"What we do and say here will make

The Florida trip costs $199 per student in a four-
person room; or $187 in a six-person room. The price
includes round-trip motor coach transportation,
seven nights' accommodation at a beach-front hotel,
and discounts at local bars and restaurants.
Hal Mueller, a sophomore at West Quad and one of
the trip's representatives, said the package is
especially worthwhile because both the price and the
activities are geared for students.'
AMONG THE advantages, Mueller said, is the op-
portunity to be with other students. "You don't have

THE SKI vacation, sponsored by the University ski
club, includes five days of skiing, four nights' lodging
in a four-person room, and round-trip bus transpor-
tation, for $389 per person.
The major advantage of the trip is the "club en-%
vironment," said Neil Meisel, one of the sponsors.-
"Everybody (will be) skiing together and partying
together," he said.
"There's unbelievably great skiing at Steamboat'
Springs," said Larry Deziel, another member of the
ski club. "There's a lot for everyone. It's not just for
advanced (skiers) or beginners."
THE CONDOMINIUM where the students will be
staying is at the foot of the mountain, in the midst of
a small village, Deziel said.
Spaces in both programs are limited on a first-
come, first-serve basis.
For those who prefer something other, than trips to
America's beaches or slopes, Great Places Travel in
Ann Arbor offers a seven-day Caribbean cruise to
Cancun, Cozumel, and Key West.
The cost is $699 per person, which includes plane
fare to Tampa, a four-person room on the cruise, six
meals per day, live entertainment, cocktail parties,
movies, a ticket to the Captain's farewell party, and
other ship benefits. The price for the cruise minus air
fare is $409.
Another option for sun-seekers is the regular super-
saver fazes to California, which must be booked two
weeks in advance and cost around $350 for a round-
trip day time flight to Los Angeles, or $301 for a night
trip to Los Angeles or San Francisco.
Members of the Automobile Association of
America can also get discounts at AAA approved
hotels and motels across the country.
